Product Overview

Teachers everywhere are experiencing unprecedented rates of burnout and demoralization—feeling dispirited, losing confidence and hope (Santoro, 2018). The top words they use to describe their feelings are anxious, fearful, worried, overwhelmed, and sad (Cipriano & Brackett, 2020). If you are a teacher, chances are you have moments when you ask yourself, “What do I need to move forward with hope in this career?” Maybe you love your job on many levels, but you also struggle to keep up with its relentless demands.

This guide is written by Dr. Amy L Eva with hope in mind. Dr. Eva is the Associate Education Director at the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley and one of the key developers of Greater Good in Education, a popular website that features research-informed practices for creating kinder, happier schools where everyone belongs. In the guide, she presents four simple well-being strategies that require very little time and investment but go a long way in helping teachers navigate daily challenges while elevating positive experiences in their lives and their work. They are

  1. Name your emotions
  2. Practice compassion for yourself and others
  3. Savor good things
  4. Reconnect with your strength and values

For each strategy, the guide offers “try it” exercises and “ask yourself” reflection questions.

By dedicating just a few minutes each day to practicing the simple, research-based strategies outlined in the guide, teachers will find themselves feeling a stronger sense of agency in their lives and greater emotional resilience. They will also be better able to provide emotional support to their students.
